Four Black History Month IPA Collabs

For Black History Month, four Black-owned breweries in NorCal are releasing special collaborations commemorating four incredible figures in American history.

Bay Area-native Milton Bowens is behind the can label designs, part of a larger series called the People's Art Campaign showcased at Underground Books, founded by Kevin Johnson, former NBA star and past mayor of Sacramento, and located across from Oak Park Brewing Co.

A different style of IPA was brewed for each release -- red, black, hazy and West Coast -- with two being brewed locally at Hunters Point Brewery (familiar home to Speakeasy Ales & Lagers), one at Oak Park Brewing Co. in Sacramento, and the fourth at Full Circle Brewing Co. in Fresno. Three of the four beers feature South African hops, Southern Passion and African Queen, known for their fruit-forward flavors.

Don't lose time. Refreshing hazy beer with plenty of fruity hops (pineapple, lemon) and nice bitterness that doesn’t get overwhelming.

Black India Pale Ale

You can cage the singer but not the song. Rich with roast and caramel flavors with nice citrus-pine hoppiness, yet crisp and light with tasty coffee bitterness.
